Impressive!

The battleship looks very impressive and has a telling history. Make sure you are prepared to walk through some narrow spaces inside.

If you have an hour to spare on your laast day and are stayingina central Hotel like the NOVOTEL just off the NEVSKY PROSPEKT then take a right turn along Litenyi PROSPEKT - a treat to walk along its western side as only one or two roads brach off to the left and so the timed green WALK sign will...

I really can't rate this for the simple reason it is not where it is said to be on tourist maps or tourist books. We walked for miles searching for it and eventually discovered that it had been moved on 21 September 2014 to some shipyard for repairs.

This is a very historic an important trip to see. It's a rare survivor of this early period of 20 th C .Naval warfare. Unfortunately, I could not actually get on the ship and we could visit from far. It appears in beautiful condition. It's a shame it is not routinely open for tours

If you only have a few days in St. Petersburg as we did there were more amazing things to see than this.

For the second time in my life I got to see the Aurora. First time was in 1981, when we could only have a look at it from outside. Now there is quite a big exhibition inside. You can visit it with a guide, but as it seemed to us only in Russian. So we went in with a group... More

My wife suggested that we visited this historic batleship with our kids during our last trip to St. Petersburg. I'd been somewhat resistant but then my older son wanted to see it and so we did it. The entrance logistics were somewhat confusing - people line up for entry on the embankment and official tour guides take about 40-50 visitors... More

I went to the Aurora and thought that I'd see a ship museum. Actually the museum consisted mainly of art, pictures and some Soviet artifacts. When you go to the museum you won't see much of the ship like what it was for the sailors who worked there. Only the outside of the ship is something like that. But you... More

Visiting this historic former imperial Russian ship was a must on our tour, and I'm glad that I did see it. I highly recommend military enthusiasts visit this site.
